Sanity does not prevail long

At this point, I’m rather looking forward to seeing the idiot Vikings get shellacked again. I don’t think this decision to deactivate AD again, this time indefinitely, is going to go over well with the Vikings fan base. It certainly hasn’t gone over well with the Vikings fans in the Day household:

The Minnesota Vikings placed Adrian Peterson on the Exempt/Commissioner’s Permission list, requiring the running back to abstain from team activities during his child-abuse case, the team announced Wednesday morning. Peterson was indicted last Thursday on a charge that he injured his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a tree branch. He was inactive for the team’s Week 2 loss to the New England Patriots but was reinstated Monday.

To be honest, I thought people were exaggerating when they talked about Goodell and Pink October being harbingers of the NFL’s downfall. But the invasion of the self-appointed SJW police into what used to be a man’s game is seriously killing the game in more ways that one.

As Ender commented, they could cut the number of flags being thrown in half and there would still be too many. At this point, I’d rather watch soccer than an NFL game just because most of the action one watches actually counts.

“soccer is way more gay than the NFL. …  i must believe it so. dear god please”

Perhaps once, but not anymore, I’m afraid. I’ve actually seen more serious injuries on the soccer field than on the football field. One of my teammates got a pair of ribs broken in our game last week, and I’ve seen numerous legs broken, including one nasty compound fracture that was sticking out through the skin.
